May 27, 2010 – Federalist No. 22 – Janine Turner
Friday, May 28th, 2010
Why write many paragraphs when a few lines will do, three lines to be exact, from Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist No. 22?
1. Though the genius of the people of this country..
2. Its opposition contradicts that fundamental maxim of Republican government, which requires that the sense of the majority shall prevail.
3. The fabric of American empire out to rest on the solid basis of THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE.
Are these words being honored in our American government today?
